Not a bad one in the group and the best news is that we're not done yet as we've got several more delicious wines lined up for the coming weeks. The 2010 Colterenzio Weisshaus Pinot Biancobegins with a really inviting aroma of pear, melon and a bit of zesty citrus. Tasting the wine reveals similar flavors to the bouquet along with good, zesty acidity, a wonderful rich taste and a really nice mouthfeel. Don't drink this wine too cold to get the best experience (i.e. if you put it in the fridge let it warm up a bit before drinking). It ends nicely with some chalky mineral notes. This wine has the potential to age 5-10 years. See a listing of local retailers selling this wine here.
